5 Things Your Grandmother Did That You Had No Use For As A Child But Desperately Need To Swear By as an Adult
Let’s face it. Our grandmother’s did some crazy things that thoroughly confused us as children but today … well … they just don’t seem that bad. In fact, they seem slightly brilliant, actually. I’ll go ahead and accept that maybe it was just our grandmothers … whatevs. Either way, today we’ve got our top 5 granny habits we’re totally claiming this year year!
Like these things:
1. Let’s not pretend like your good old granny didn’t spend the beginning of the New Year stocking up on stationary.
We love stationary! It’s the perfect way to leave an impression! It’s also super perfect for creatives and entrepreneurs committed to following up with new or potential clients … or new connections … or just new friends who have left an impression on you!
We LOVE the cute and quirky cards from AllyElleCards
2. Speaking of stationary, let’s be real, granny’s are the queens of discount shopping!
What better time to stock up on all the holiday cards and wrapping paper you’ll need for next year than right now?! It’s all on SALE!
3. Granny’s love to prep a serious winter wardrobe
Granny’s love a good seasonal change. They’re completely here for shedding and storing whatever is needed and prepping for some cold weather like the store’s won’t be open when the winter hits. Well … winter is here … and we found the most AMAZING winter wear at Shirley + Alice last time we were in Brooklyn!

4. Start Spring and Summer Prep
Granny’s love a good trip. But for the most frugal of grannies, planning the perfect summer that could somehow include kids, grandkids, and things THEY actually wanted for THEMSELVES meant one thing:
5. Updating the recipe book!
what? that’s not yo’ granny?“
You may not have a huge rolodex of recipes like your granny had. Maybe you’re not writing them all down in a sacred binder … BUT … now’s still the best time to get on your "new year, new you” (rolls eyes
) ish and find a few good recipes to get you through the rest of winter.
